Northern State Hospital is a former mental hospital complex, built in 1912 and closed in 1973. It was nicknamed “The Bughouse”. It is now a park that contains the remains of some of the buildings.
It’s a huge place – I walked about 3 miles and did not get to see all of it. A few of my early favorite shots are below, I will be posting more soon. The two shots of the tower are HDR (high dynamic range) images.

I noticed that this tower had an opening at arm level, so…
I knew the bottom was full of water, I had no idea what was above, but I had to try a shot. I stuck my arm in, holding the camera as tight as I could, and took the shot.
More shots coming in the next week or two as I go through them. I’d like to thank Jolene Hanson (http://jolenehansonphotos.wordpress.com/) who suggested it as a fun place for a photo trip.
